SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales work center.
  2. Go to the Leads view.
  3. Click on New.
  4. Maintain an existing account and a new contact name.
  5. Save and open.
  6. Edit the Contact section by maintaining relationship information such as phone number or department.
  7. Go to Actions: Associate Account and Contact.
  8. Select the proposed existing account from the duplicate check.
  9. Save and open.

Result: The maintained relationship information for the contact has been deleted.


This is currently the expected system behaviour.

The enhancement of lead association/conversion has been added to the product backlog and is planned to be included in a future release, so that all contact relationship is taken over for new contacts of an existing account.
